    Anyone using this?

    Will it work for defense? (like wrestling or ana/eval)

    I dont see why it wouldnt, since its a wep skill, but I think I can safely say no one is using it.

    I dunno, isn't there something screwy about it needing swordsmanship up close? Or is that just for accuracy?

    Throwing is cute on paper, useless in game.

    Just accuracy.

    Agreed on effectiveness. Taking off your pants for access to a blunt weapon to hit your opponent with would be a better option than throwing. Well, maybe not *your* pants, but you get the gist.

    I'm thinking mainly for defense. Its bound to do more damage than wrestling and unless I'm mistaken, there is a dismount special.

    Fence + Posion + lvl6 poison, and more damage then wrestle. But I myself like the stun for avoiding ganks, and disarm for nasty dexers

    Your best bet would probably be test center.

    You mean use TC for what its meant for? To test things? Not just be uber at PvP, and have macros made to change your skills on the fly, and run insured full arty suits with 0 input on the shard?

    I am pretty sure it is a gargoyle specifc skill. You will not be able to use many faction arties or even if you got he non faction route, you will not be able to use sammy helms, rbcs, aegis of grace, etc

    and from what I hear it almost always misses without the swords in close combat. So you might be better off with wrestling. Better off still with a sc weapon, or a mage wep if you wont wanna invest the points in a weapon skill.

    Good point.

    Now, to twist this. What about on a gargoyle tamer solely for defense?

    My tamer went gargoyle and I lost my swords of prosper because of this. So I need some method of defense. Is there something that will work for gargoyles or what about throwing under these conditions?

    so..... you need throwing, then swords for accuracy, and tactics for damage? Is this right?

    Mage weapon, garg tamer mage. Mounted speed with a greater, no ninjka needed, and able to cast while at mounted speed. I think Albertus runs his template like this. The greater drag standing next to you somewhat lessens the need for dci:).

    SCNP gargish weaps can be made, its also easy enough to imbue enough magery onto your jewels to offset the hit to magery. You can also convert human weaps into gargoyle ones. SCNP mage weap really seems to be what you need for the effect you desire. Hit me up if you need something,
